Everything in Order Every Day

“This is our third time stay at Wakatobi. The facility, staff, environment and diving are exceptional. The dive staff and all that was involved with diving do an exceptional job, always smiling and helpful in any way. The butlers for our villa had everything in order every day. The restaurant and staff were a joy to be around. The entire resort is awesome! “

As Special on Land as Underwater

“The diving in Wakatobi is surpassed only by the excellent and attentive staff who made Wakatobi as special on land as underwater. Everyone on the team was simply incredible. The place works like a clock, so well run! I cannot say enough good things!”

Splendid New Sites

“Wakatobi’s dive guide system was excellent, and we really liked having the same dive guide with us every dive time. The marine life on the new dive sites were splendid and the coral variety was awesome. The bird watching tour was super!”

We Plan to Be Back

“This was our 4th trip to Wakatobi and we once again really enjoyed our stay. The service was fantastic! Our dive guide was so happy, positive, and very accommodating to our diving style. I both snorkeled and dove with our guide, and he really made sure that the snorkeling was given the same attention as the diving. The boat crew was so helpful; the restaurant staff were exceptional; and the food was excellent. Housekeeping also did a great job. We plan to be back.”

Wonderful Family Vacation

“Wakatobi is a wonderful place for a family vacation and a great place for kids. The diving, snorkeling, and swimming is phenomenal. The staff was so wonderful with our 4-year-old; she was asking to go to kids club every day while we enjoyed diving. Highly recommended and we will definitely be back.  Thank you for your wonderful team’s friendly and funny spirit. From the dive staff to the resort staff they made our stay very memorable.”

Feels Like Home Now

“For me, Wakatobi is paradise on Earth. It is a place hardly imaginable for anyone who has not visited – nature and dive sites are pristine and lush; facilities are excellent, and I cannot praise enough the professionalism and kindness of all staff. It feels like home now and it was heartwarming to see some of the same staff we knew from our previous visits. We’d love to keep coming back, and with every new visit we like it still more.”

Going the Extra Mile

“My stay at Wakatobi has exceeded all my expectations! The resort’s biggest asset is its people – without exception every single person I spoke to or engaged with was friendly, cheerful, and always willing to go to the extra mile. Special shout out to the dive team. They were all great and knowledgeable and it was a real pleasure diving with them. The dive operation was run incredibly professionally and accommodating. Thank you again to everyone at Wakatobi for making this trip so special! I will be back!”

The Queen Jewel

“If you scuba dive and snorkel, Wakatobi is the Queen Jewel. You must experience it! The resort cannot be matched. All the staff knew our names from day one. We really got to know the dining staff – including the chef. The meals were excellent, and the menu was different every day and always delicious. The accommodation was first class. We stayed in a two-room [Turtle Beach] bungalow. the outdoor shower was the best! Especially at night with the accent lights on.

“And the diving! WOW. I love the boat. Getting in and out was so easy! The boat crew were very attentive –from managing your tank to giving you a hot minted cloth as soon as you came out of the water. The dive sites were stunning. I have never seen such beautiful coral.”
